Such an interesting episode of Grand Designs tonight, focussing on two heritage buildings being converted in to a new modern family home. So many interesting issues raised, gotta love Kevin McLeod. Like when protecting and conserving buildings, which period do you choose to ‘save’? What do you keep, what do you resurrect in new materials, how faithful do you be using new techniques and materials? And what is the value in keeping the frame of a building without the adornment or finishes? Interesting the owner deemed it ‘inappropriate’ to be forced to put on new roof tiles rather than use old roof tiles from a completely different building, because they should look old.
Anyway, a really interesting episode, try and catch it on iview if u missed it.
